Appraiser Liability 101 is my 4-hour online risk management course for real estate appraisers. It’s available 24/7 and consists of seven video presentations by me about interesting appraiser legal issues with a short quiz after each video. Just watch and learn. The real-world appraiser cases I talk about are interesting!
An appraiser in Hawaii recently wrote: “Your online course … was great. I was actually sorry to see it was over, and I can’t say this of any other CE class that I’ve taken.”
E&O Discount for Completing Appraiser Liability 101: Appraisers who are insured by LIA Administrators & Insurance Services and who complete the course become eligible for a discount on their E&O premium (once per year). In most states (any state other than CA, CO or MA), the E&O discount is $70 or the amount you paid for the course (whichever is lower) if the per claim limit of your policy is $500,000 or above, or $40 if your claim limit is lower. So, basically the course works out to being free or almost free. In CA, CO and MA, the discount is currently $50 if the per claim limit of your policy is $500,000 or above, or $25 if your claim limit is lower. Please check with LIA if you have detailed questions about your applicable E&O discount.
